When discussing the value of the gold, Vitti says: "$350 an ounce, 16 ounces to the pound, 90 pounds to the bar." Precious metals are measured in Troy weight in which there are twelve ounces per pound not sixteen as in the Avoirdupois system. See more »

User Reviews

The analysis is dire for flat, uninspired sequel
9 June 2003 | by SwingBattaSee all my reviews

Analyze That (2002): Incarcerated mobster Paul Vitti (Robert DeNiro, who is first seen dancing around on a tabletop like a lunatic and singing songs from "West Side Story") is released into the custody of his hapless psychiatrist, Dr. Ben Sobel (Billy Crystal), and predictable, allegedly humorous hijinks ensue. Somehow it was considered a smart move to include a heist-caper subplot that honestly expects viewers to believe that Sobel, Vitti and his mob friends (all equipped with thousand-dollar suits and standard New Yawker accents) are going to form a cohesive unit and attempt to rip off an armored truck containing millions of dollars in gold bullion. It's unfortunate that neither Dr. Sobel nor director Harold Ramis can solve the identity crisis that outright cripples this movie, because it can't decide if it wants to be a hysterical knee-slapper or a straightfaced crime drama. It succeeds at neither. In fact, this same nonsense was pulled in "Showtime" (which also starred DeNiro), and look how that wreck turned out. Another strained subplot puts Vitti in the public eye as he serves as a consultant on a "Sopranos"-style TV show despite his complaining to Sobel that someone is out to kill him and that he was almost offed in prison. Do make sure to sit through the closing credits, where compensation for the squandering of Crystal's and DeNiro's talents comes in the form of the long-overdue laughs that should have been reserved for the actual movie instead. 5/10
